Summary: 5 M.R.S.A. §82, Maine law specifies that only adult residents of the State may be appointed as Notaries Public. The Secretary of State is charged with establishing criteria and procedures; the one statutory restriction is that appointment or renewal may not be refused solely because the applicant lives or works in a specific geographic area or for political party affiliation. This rule revises such criteria and procedures.
